Cumulus taps radio veteran as program director for Super Talk 99.7

Ex-Laura Schlessinger show pro elevated from host role at WWTN

Cumulus has promoted 25-year radio veteran Dan Mandis to program director at its Nashville news/talk station WWTN-FM (Super Talk 99.7 WTN).

Mandis (pictured), who hosts WTN weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. got his start at KFI in his hometown of Los Angeles before spending many years with the nationally syndicated Dr. Laura Schlessinger program. He would later embark on a career in hosting and programming in markets across the U.S. 

"Dan Mandis is an accomplished spoken-word programmer and the perfect choice to guide WWTN into its next phase as the place where Nashville comes to learn about and celebrate life in one of America's greatest cities," John Dickey, Cumulus executive vice president and co-chief operating officer, said in a release.
